Hello people, Can someone answer my ques.? I tore my ACL and meniscus ligament on my left knee last Nov. 1999, I had to undergo a reconstructive surgery to repair it. Then therapy continued, however, it won't work. Meaning no matter how I try, I can't get back my total flexion in the left knee which is 135 degrees, I can only do 90. Is there a possibility that the surgery went awry? You see two screws were inserted inside my knee to repair it. I researched the net and found out that while it is normal procedure, the screws would have to be taken out after a certain period. However, my doc insists that it will remain there forever and there is no need to take it out. I suspect that that is the cause I can't achieve full flexion. Maybe the screws are blocking something inside? Pls. comment anybody. Should I go get a 2nd opinion?
